The studio has announced the latest move in its digital expansion strategy, closing a multi-year deal with the subscriber service that covers such library titles as Pulp Fiction, Chocolat and There Will Be Blood (pictured).
The pact is effective immediately and means Hulu subscribers in Japan will be able to watch instantly a selection of catalogue films on internet-connected devices including smartphones, tablets, TV, Blu-ray, gaming consoles and PCs.
“We are pleased to partner with Hulu in Japan, which has built a compelling platform in a market we are very focused on,” Miramax CEO Mike Lang said. “We look forward to making our terrific movies available to many more television and digital platforms in Japan, as well as other markets throughout Asia, as the audience continues to expand exponentially and new platforms continue to proliferate.”
Films from the Miramax library include The English Patient, From Dusk Till Dawn, Gone Baby Gone, Good Will Hunting, Scream and Spy Kids.
